# Designed for SAP Business One
The Modern Standard for Pharmaceutical Trade
In the pharmaceutical industry, orders for drugs between pharmacies and pharmaceutical wholesalers or suppliers are electronically mapped using SAP Business One and the pharmacy software. The MSV3 data interface is the general technical standard for the ordering process and offers direct communication between all market partners involved.
COBI.msv maps version 2 of this standard and makes it possible to accept orders in MSV3 format and convert them into a SAP Business One customer order. MSV3 functions such as authentication and availability requests are implemented through queries to SAP Business One, so that no intermediate database is required.
